AED / Lightning Safety Program
The Collegiate Sports Medicine Foundation, Mississippi Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center,
Mississippi High School Activities Association and the Mississippi Athletic Trainers’ Association has

athletic departments. This program provides a Medtronics AED and StormHawk Lightning Detector at
no cost to the school, training of personnel, maintenance and replacement cost for five (5) years. In
addition to the AED and lightning detector the school would receive a credit with Sports Health for the

display in a high traffic location on campus or within the community. Life Signs America would then
be responsible for selling advertisements to support the AED program. The school system (high
school, middle school, elementary school or college) would receive the AED, training and supply
credit when nine (9) advertisements have been sold. In addition, the Mississippi High School
